I have been playing aroud with some different kinds of stitching- machine and hand for the waterways series I intend to make. The last lot is colonial knots- they are easier than french knots- and less likely to not knot properly, and done densely really give an interesting texture- and its another variation on a dot ( and yes I do read Jude's blog- but I have also had a long standing love affair with dots and circles- they have occurred in my work throughout).
Went to see Kavisha Mazella last night- very inspirational and upbeat. I love how she weaves her stories around the music and uses her cultural background to add humour, depth and diversity to her music- I was very much reminded of story cloth- in all reality and charmed.
